    Crosswalk Plugin Version: 1.7.2
    Device Name: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 
    OS: Android 4.4.2

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I installed this plugin which is listed in your verified plugins and it doesn't work on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. 

    The reason I installed it was to get around the Input Type File Not Working on Android issue:

    http://docs.telerik.com/platform/knowledge-base/troubleshooting/troubleshooting-input-type-file-not-working-on-android

    The error message I get states: Mismatch of CPU Architecture (See Screen 1).

    I have tested all of these devices on the AWS Mobile Device Farm and the plugin worked great:

    HTC One M8 (AT&T) Android 4.4.4
    LG G Flex (AT&T) Android 4.4.2
    LG G2 (AT&T) Android 4.4.2
    LG G3 (Sprint) Android 4.4.2
    LG Optimus L70 (MetroPCS) Android 4.4.2
    Motorola DROID Ultra (Verizon) Android 4.4.4
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (AT&T) Android 4.4.2
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Verizon) Android 4.4.4
    Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (AT&T) Android 5.0.1
    Samsung Galaxy S3 (Sprint) Android 4.4.2
    Samsung Galaxy S6 (Verizon) Android 5.0.2

    I'm concerned that the plugin may be an issue on other Android devices that I haven't tested yet. I'm considering just replacing the file input control with the Cordova camera plugin.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Joe,

    According to this article on Wikipedia, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has x86 CPU architecture.

    At this stage, AppBuilder cannot produce x86 versions of the built applications out of the box. This issue should be fixed in the next AppBuilder major release.

    Until that happens, you can follow the workaround outlined in this knowledge base article in order to produce APK files that can be deployed on Android devices that use x86 CPU ABI.

    Please accept my apologies for any inconveniences this issue might be causing you.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    Preslav,

    Thanks for your prompt response, this makes much more sense now to me now. I actually just went ahead and changed my app to use the Cordova camera plugin. It's working well and didn't take very long for me to implement.

    Thanks,

    Joe
